Applied Probability Research in Eastern Africa (APREA)

ISP and Sida through the Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP) have been supporting postgraduate training, research and postdoctoral activities in Mathematical Sciences within the East African region since the year 2002 with tremendous results. These activities have been enhanced by organising annual summer schools, scientific workshops, seminars and conference within the region.

The Applied Probability Research in Eastern Africa (APREA) was formed in the year 2018 to consolidate ISP training and research efforts and to ensure that sustainability is created.

APREA comprises of members from:

  • University of Nairobi, Kenya
  • Kenyatta University, Kenya
  • Technical University, Kenya
  • Makerere University, Uganda
  • Kyambogo University, Uganda
  • Eduardo Mondlane University, Mozambique
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
  • Linköping University, Sweden

The group organises bi-weekly virtual seminars and our future plans include a joint scientific workshops, collaborative research and joint publications.


The main objective of APREA is to form a sustainable statistical research group whose focus is in solving health, economic and environmental issues using applied probability theories which eventually will contribute significantly towards poverty reduction.
